Series 2 - Lesson 2 - Annotation 12
What was Jesus' custom in the matter of self-identification?
It is a law that we manifest as that with which we identify ourself. Jesus' custom was to identify Himself with His real or Christ self, the Son of God, the Word, the I AM, the Logos. If we would identify ourself with God as Jesus did, then the errors of human consciousness, built up through acceptance of the concept of man as merely a biological organism, must be denied. We must refuse to use the powers of the I AM to produce conditions in mind, body, and affairs based on false conceptions.
"Man can use I AM power to restore health and bring increased happiness ... some people are using this power in a material way, neglecting soul culture, building up the external without taking the intermediate step between the supreme Mind and its manifestation in the outer" (Jesus Christ Heals 124).
